3. Yes, the links are certainly there but . . .

The Man Who Stood Behind Trump can't see that, can't comprehend the connection. Because he didn't allow it to enter his personal world, not even his living memory.

What I found fascinating about the article was the construct this man has accepted as real, a construct that completely inoculates him from the life--the Good, the Bad, the Ugly--swirling around him. The Man Who Stood Behind Trump isn't your typical knuckle-dragger basking in their hatred of all things different. This is a guy who's convinced himself that he couldn't possibly be all the things those critical emails claimed he was. Because his perspective is so out of whack.

Nonetheless, those emails startled, rattled him. The unflattering comments didn't wake him up but they nudged him into at least thinking about what they meant.

For a guy who's been living in a deluded narrative that's probably a lot.

Lots of unexamined lives out in the hinterlands, perfect matches to Trumpski and his Big Lie.
